At Computex 2019, TeamGroup unveiled a couple of new products aimed at users looking for high-end components. One of these was its refreshed T-Force Xcalibur DDR4 memory now with addressable ARGB LEDs.
During CES 2019, TeamGroup announced a set of ASRock Phantom Gaming branded Xcalibur RGB modules, fast forward to Computex 2019, TeamGroup had its new T-Force Xcalibur ARGB on display with the new ARGB heatsinks modelled over a high-end kit of DDR4-4000 Samsung B-Die based memory kit.
The T-Force Xcalibur ARGB memory is very similar in design to the previous special edition Xcalibur RGB modules, but with new addressable RGB LEDs which seems to be the new market trend for gaming-focused brands. Each heatsink has a black aluminium finish with the Xcalibur and T-Force logos, with the 120 degrees angled lighting coming from the light bar at the top of the module which includes an Aztec inspired patterning.
While TeamGroup only had a DDR4-4000 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) kit on display, it remained silent on which frequencies and capacity configurations it would be available to end users in. It will likely cover the same kits the T-Force Xcalibur RGB are available in including DDR4-3600 and DDR4-4000.

Umer - Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - linkHmm ... looks neat, but I really like Trident Z series from G.Skill ever since DDR4 came out. Before that, Dominator Platinums were my favorite from Corsair for the longest time.
I liked how Trident Z did RGB as well, lights were diffused, which added a really neat touch and then others followed too.
Right now I kinda like their Royal series, I might replace my current Trident Z ones with those in next year build, depending on the theme for the build I go with since they can be a bit too gaudy.
Dragonstongue - Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - linkyeh that royal line is some slick asf RGB, this coming from a guy who wishes RGB or at least manufacturers putting it on everything, even if comes at the cost of something likely much more wanted/needed such as proper airflow through the stupid heatsink/VRM on some mobo whom I suppose thought it was more of a suggestion than a want (proper motherboard cooling even if not the best airflow...pretty bad when can take something off they added at factory and it drops temperatures idle and load noticeable degrees celsius, definitely can tell when put on take off and can see the change more or less real time...hence they need be far more concerned about everything else, RGB can be plopped on/wired in more or less right before they stuff into a box...it might even ensure they make sure their RGB works "everytime" not have to wait weeks/months for drivers that should be included day 1..bloody hell
(ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte are all "guilty"...I sure hope not a single one of them ever uses heatshield for m.2 drives anymore, at least not without some visible cooling "fins" instead of something that traps more than it wicks away...MSI..LOL
Oxford Guy - Friday, June 14, 2019 - linkSo, B die is discontinued and companies are introducing new B die designs.
I suppose they're hoping for a massive price increase as enthusiasts try to get the last ones.
